I recently open an account and my credit score dropped. Will closing it drop my score more?
I recently opened a clothing store credit card. I noticed after opening this card my credit score dropped six points. I only opened to receive the additional percentage off. I truly don't need the card and paid it off the week after opening. If I close it will this drop my score more?
